Iraq: Car bomb wounds 4 US troops in Ramadi

A car bomb struck a convoy in Ramadi on Sunday, wounding four American troops, the military said. The explosion occurred near the convoy as it was headed to the government center in the insurgent-ridden city, 115 kilometers (70 miles) west of Baghdad. Four coalition forces were wounded, the military said in a statement. US and Iraqi forces have recently stepped up their presence in the city, where many areas are so dangerous that they go unpatrolled.
